You have been give a few solutions, here is a GUI one. In Gnome you can
connect to a network from Places menu and see the remote machine's
folders and files in a Nautilus window. You can then drag/drop files
between your local and remote machines via the GUI. One can do similar
think in Konqueror by going by browsing to fish://username@remote.machine.

I personally use scp and rsync and have used the GUI methods a few times.
